Review: Backstage Pass (Sinners on Tour #1) by Olivia Cunning

Backstage Pass

Sinners on Tour

Book 1

For him, life is all music and no play…

When Brian Sinclair, songwriter and lead guitarist of the hottest metal band on the scene, loses his creative spark, it will take nights of downright sinful passion to release his pent-up genius…

She’s the one to call the tune…

When sexy psychologist Myrna Evans goes on tour with the Sinners, every boy in the band tries to seduce her. But Brian is the only one she wants to get her hands on…

Then the two lovers’ wildly shocking behavior sparks the whole band to new heights of glory…and sin.

******

Ms. Olivia Cunning is one hell of a writer! This has been my first reading by her and let me say this won’t be my last. Now, as you can google the date this book came out – let me tell you this has been on my to be read list for quite some time. I’m happy to day that I pulled it out my TBR and opened the cover some “magically delicious” writing. If you have not tried your hand at reading Ms. Cunning’s work, please do so at my request. She is brilliant.

The books by line says it all… “Love, Sex, and Rock ‘n’ Roll…” but what it doesn’t say is that within these pages is some very hot, very erotic, very leave you breathless reading material. You will find yourself panting, drooling a little, cheering and down right out turned on by Brian and Myrna’s story.

The story has great depth to it. It is just not about rock and roll and groupies. Or even about hot, wicked naughty sex. This story has some meat to (and I am not just talking about the band members lol). The story line will make you turn the pages so fast you might hurt your fingers, lol

Myrna is a professor who’s degree happens to be human sexuality but when she has a chance meeting of seeing her favorite band of all time in a hotel bar one night, she does not realize that one night will change her entire world forever. She has been presenting and attending seminars at a convention when she is just about to call it quits for the night… but when she sees Master Sinclair face down on the hotel bar’s floor… well, who is she to walk away from an opportunity to unwind, lol.

Brian is so drunk, he’s not even sure if he is sitting down, laying down, or two steps away from retching everything up. He’s miserable, physically and emotionally. Being in a band makes it difficult to find a quality woman much less one who will not cheat on you with all your band buddies. But that is why he is plastered on the hotel bar floor – because someone broke his heart. But a chance meeting with a woman who has the potential to flip his world upside down could go down the drain if he can’t sober up long enough to remember her room number.

These two do not realize how much alike they are until – piece by piece they start to I peel each layer of their life to each and are stripped bared. But will exposing all skeletons in their closet be enough to keep them together – Brian can surely hope so. Or will things in Myrna’s closet keep her at arms length away from Brian.

This story will keep you on your toes and each band member, as you get to know them, will plague your heart. They are made family, five men together on the road. Always having each other’s back, no matter what. But when one of them has a sweet, tender heart what will they do to protect him from himself and the demise of a woman. Such an awesome story. And I promise by the end of the book – you will want to find that person that will write a song on your body after making love! Just saying!

Bravo Ms. Cunning!

review

This is a story that will draw you from the minute you open the book but it will not let you go. Nope, you will want to know more about this awesome group of friends and their adventures through life. This story, even though it is about a retired NFL player and most of us in our lives will never meet one – much less date one, is written in a way that brings all the characters down to earth and into your heart. Ms. Blake has a way with her words that has you cheering on the characters as they embark on journey’s they never saw themselves going on, facing challenges in their lives, but holding their hand during the heartbreak they go through.

JJ, Julia to those closest to her, is damn good at what she does. No matter who the subject of her story is, she makes sure to get the best story. Being the best journalist in the sport industry makes her very sought after – even if she does not believe that. That is one reason why she goes by JJ… to help her in the field. She has had to deal with some big names in the industry, but one always stuck with her – Trevor Wyatt. He has starred in more dreams than she cares to mention but she never lead on to anyone that she crushed on him. Not even her three best friends! They share everything, but there are some things that Julia just has not shared with her friends… Julia has been the one to always play it safe, never take risks… but that all changes when she walks into a shoe store to find the man of her lusty dreams behind the counter… wanting to wait on her!

Trevor is use to all the attention he attracts. Being a retired NFL player can do that to a man. He has had his share of women and enjoyed the side of celebrity but he has also experienced the side that brings around stalkers and just straight up crazy-ass women/men. That is the side he does not want, he did not ask for. He has been looking over his shoulder because of these types of people. He just wants a normal, or what normal he can have life… he wants a woman he can trust, love and bring home to his family. But that is kinda hard to do when you block yourself off from the world… Until one day, helping out his cousin, puts him in line to offer his service to the woman he has been wanting for a long time… Julia Fairchild… The one woman that gets him and understands him… the one woman that could destroy him…

This story has such a range of emotions for all of its characters. This story is about Julia and Trevor, but you meet Julia’s best friends, her brothers and her dad. You also meet Trevor’s family and in meeting all of these people, Ms. Blake writes it so that you want to know more about those as well… especially Julia’s best friends… I just know that their stories should come (if they haven’t already) and Julia’s brothers. The family does not interfere with the story of Julia and Trevor but they add spices to the story that will have you laughing and going “aweee.” And let me say that even though Julia is a wizard with her words on paper… the bedroom is a different matter and the way Trevor makes her Ask For It! 😉

#Review: Surge (St. Martin Family Saga: Emergency Responders #3) by @ginawatsongina

surge_450Surge

Book Three in the St. Martin Family Saga: Emergency Responders

He was twenty-eight, she was eighteen.

Everyone around them opposed their love.

But their love was much greater than the sum of their ages.

Clara’s family took Jackson in when, at the age of seventeen, he’d lost his parents. The St. Martins were the only family he had. When his connection with Clara developed into something stronger, he couldn’t feel remorseful. What he did feel was warmth, hope, and love. Ten years later it was time to tell the family—he wouldn’t let their love be a lie any longer.

When he came to live with them, Clara knew one day she’d marry him. She just didn’t know her family wouldn’t be on board with the plans. Sure, Jackson was much older than her and yeah, they’d jumped the gun on intimacy, but she’d needed Jackson’s touch that day and he’d needed hers. They planned to marry once he finished medical school, but when Clara’s brother found out about their two-year relationship he beat the good doctor’s face until he was unrecognizable.

Jackson couldn’t see a way  they could be together and she wouldn’t have to make a choice between him and her family. He knew what it was to go through life without the support of family and he wouldn’t let her choose him over the St. Martins.

Will Clara and Jackson be able to have a future together, or will her family tear them apart?

This is the last installment in the St. Martin Family Saga: Emergency Responders series and let me say – Damn you Gina!! I have read all the St. Martin series and this was unlike any of the other stories that I have read. This one dripped emotion so thick off the pages that I felt my eyes moisten up. Gina’s writing is so detailed you will feel your own heart break, you will feel your soul filled with a black void of where your heart use to be because Gina will hold your heart in her hand. Her writing will take you away from where you are and transplant you in Whiskey Cove with the St. Martin’s. This story…. Well, let’s just get down to the review so I can tell…

Clara is the baby sister of all the St. Martin boys. She is the youngest and the only girl in the family, so of course they all look after her with such a fierce protection that no one dares mess with her. Clara might be young at 18 years old, but she is wise beyond her years. She has a sense about things that no one would be able to comprehend. And she knows that the one person in the world that is meant to be hers is the one person that has saved her time and time again. Without a doubt, she knows like her next breath she has to take to survive, she would not survive without his love. But her relationship is surrounded by lies and deceit and has crippled her soul and being surrounded by couples infatuated with each other is making her want to come clean with her family… but what would they say when they found it was Jackson… Could Clara live without the man that is her oxygen in life? What if she had to choose her family or her soul mate?

Jackson is a man made of pure determination and loyalty. He would do anything in the world for his extended family – the St. Martin’s. Not of blood relations but a bond so strong that nothing would come between them. After his parent’s death, Mrs. St. Martin took him into her home and made him one of her own. Everyone accepted him but the only daughter accepted him and loved him more than life itself. He needed his Clara like a man needed to his next breath to survive. He knew that even when she was still too young, that she was meant to be his and his alone. But was he ready to share his secret with those that have come to love him no matter what… would they accept the love he had for their sister/daughter? What happened if they disapproved of him as the man for her? He would rather die than be without Clara… Death would be a welcome gift if he could not have her…

Damn you Gina, you made me cry with this one. Actual tears fell from my eyes to the iPad screen as I read this one. This story is crafted so well, that for the first few chapters I was wondering if the reading was easy breezy. I was actually wondering where the turmoil would come from with Jackson and Clara’s story because their love is so apparent, you will see it come alive in the pages you read. You know they are meant for each other as they quite reverently speak of it all the time. Their story was actually getting to me and I was like okay… they love each other A Lot…. Then boom… you see their true character come out, they do not like lying to the family, and they do not like hiding… And then comes the real story… Don’t get me wrong, the true story is Jackson and Clara’s undying love for each other… but with a family like the St. Martin’s, everything is done as a family… But what happens when the family turns on you… Then what… And when the family turns on you and the love of your life turns on you too… … What do you have left… nothing… But tears and memories… This story is about fighting for what you believe in and I could not be more proud of how Clara handled herself and fought for what she believed in… Cracker Jack and Bug… Awesomely done Ms. Gina!

#Review: Seize (St. Martin Family Saga: Emergency Responders #2) by @ginawatsongina

seize_450Book Two in the St. Martin Family Saga: Emergency Responders

Mia was in trouble.

She was alone and she was scared. She prayed for a miracle, and then she met Augustine. A Marine, turned sheriff, named after a saint.

 Augustine Roy liked his job as Sheriff of East Baton Rouge Parish. He liked the town and the town’s women, some said too much, but he’d never heard any of them complain. He wasn’t interested in monogamy, a fact most single women in town had come to understand. He loved his family and friends and when his best friend, Clay, needed his help, he jumped at the chance to use his skills as a former Marine Corps field extraction expert.

While Augie thrived when life ran calm and controlled, his current situation was anything but. Mia had entered his life and dumped it on its head. To top it off, she was so not his type. He preferred large breasted Southern blondes with experience in the sack. Mia was slim, Canadian, and to his utter disbelief, a twenty five year old virgin.

But then he’d gone and married her . . .

 . . . and then she’d passed out.

When Mia woke, she had a new name, and a new ring. She just hoped like hell she’d not missed the wedding consummation.

I am sure you guys are getting tired of hearing me talk about Gina and all her men, but today is not different.  Her writing kicks major ass! The woman wields a pen and paper the way a swordsman wields his sword.  Her writing is thick like a roux (google it lol – it’s a Louisiana thing) and has everything that makes you go ummmmm… Like a delicious bowl of gumbo! She makes you feel her characters heartache, but she also makes sure that she wraps you thick in the love the characters are feeling.  She does not want to leave you wondering what they are feeling, she makes you feel it.

Augustine, Augie, is the Sheriff of East Baton Rouge and an extended part of the St. Martin clan.  He’s best friends with Clay, the oldest brother of the St. Martin boys. This is a man who’s past haunts him every time he closes his eyes to sleep… But he tries to counter what happened back then by saving lives in the today… And that is what he thought he would be doing when Clay asked him to go to Canada to get divorce papers signed by Eve’s soon to be ex-husband and to retrieve his bride’s to be sister, Mia.  Augie was all for saving people, he just didn’t think he needed saving… Until he meets Mia and she shakes his world upside down and inside out!

Mia is used to taking care of everyone and everything all her life. She had to grow up early in life and for that, I feel for her. Having to take care of her mother in the manner in which she did, left no life for Mia at all.  She isn’t stupid by any means, but some things just done click when they should. She might seem immature at times, but when you read her story and see what she has gone through, you will want to cut her some slack and allow her to enjoy the little things in life.  She does not know the danger she is in, until she meets a man that points it out every time she turns around…. But is she ready for things that change within her from meeting this man… Only time will tell.

This story kinda shook me a little.  Gina wrote a story that some might say pushed the boundaries of meanness but you have to understand where those feelings come from and to understand that is to understand the man – Augie.  He literally has been through hell and back (seeing war in Afghanistan) and having dealt with so much has left his soul a little void of anything but nightmares.  He is truly a character that will twist your heart and sometimes you will not know what to think of him.  He is mean, rude, demanding, arrogant, blunt… But he is also fiercely loyal and devoted without question. But getting past those walls is damn near impossible… Until Mia.

She is a refreshing breath of air with her sense of humor and her innocence.  She doesn’t look at things or people the way most people do. She does not play victim to her past circumstances, she stands up for herself and for others. Her giving soul is so rich, she will make you feel like you do not do enough, lol.

This story will take you through all sorts of emotions. Some you will not be able to deal with, but I promise you it will be worth the ride.  You must read Augie and Mai’s story… For what they have to share will show you some people are just made for each other.

Another great job Gina!!

#Review: Anita Cox – The Beginning, Dirty White Candy, Book #1 @authoranitacox

Anita Cox - The Beginning (Dirty White Candy #1)The Beginning, Dirty White Candy, Book #1

Genre: Contemporary, Menage
Content Notes: Intense, Light BDSM, F/F, M/F/F, D/S Elements, Polyamory

Traded in for a younger, newer model by the only man she’s ever made love to, thirty-something Candy Kavana finds herself craving human interaction of the carnal nature. Shy and sexually repressed, Candy turns to her best friend, Stacy, for advice. And what advice it is!

Candy nervously dives into sex therapy and what she discovers is more than mind-blowing sex. She discovers a side of herself she never dreamed existed. Now that she’s wet her whistle, she can’t get enough. Just how far is Candy willing to take her sexual exploration?

review

This book was given to me for my honest thoughts… so here goes.

This is my first book by Ms. Anita and I have to say that her dedication to her husband gave me the giggles. I knew at that moment we would be good friends… lol! So my new friend, her book, and I cuddled up together and things gotta little hot. Hell, hot is being mild. Ms. Anita’s style of writing is definitely refreshingly for the independent woman of today. Her writing is witty, on point and just oh my… yea… just that good.

Candy is a delicious treat in the world of “what we want, we want it now” and “all the information you want to know is at the push of a button.” She is naïve when it comes to herself – sexually. Some women are more advanced in their sexual knowledge than some, so the idea of her being a little lost was not hard to believe… But her course of action is one…. Well, one best read. She had me giggling and getting hot in the same sentence, lol. Candy is someone you will want to meet…

The journey you will go on with Candy is one that you will not forget. Hell you may even want to create your own journey. Life sometimes hands us crappy moments but those moments make us stronger. Candy had a little liquid courage to take the steps needed to make her stronger but she did them… and Damn did this woman fly!

This is the first in a series, so I am definitely intrigued as to what is to come to Candy… or what makes her come **big grins** This book is not for the faint of heart. If you can’t handle the bed a rocking… don’t go a reading… Be ready to tie someone up and spank some bottom! Oh and I have to say that if female/female loving is not your cup (if it is not… then we need to talk) then just be prepared for a few scenes of it… Ms. Anita crafted those scenes VERY well!

#Review – Sinful Surrender (Psychic Menage #1) by @HoustonHavens

review

 

LSB Cover Art Template for PhotoShopFirst, let me say that I have received this book for my honest thoughts and that is what you are going to get.

Secondly, if you classify this book as a sci-fi story, I will tell you I am not a religious reader of sci-fi stories…. But for me to read this book and not want to put it down must mean something. And lastly, the blurb’s tag line – Can one woman satisfy the diverse desires of three men – caught my attention! What can I say – I am a smutty hussy after all 🙂

After reading the blub of the story, I thought I was in for a reading I would not understand because I am normally not a reader of sci-fi, post-apocalyptic and dystopian themed stories but I have to say that Ms. Havens’ does a hell’va job at grabbing your attention and not letting go… not even when you come to the last page. This story rocked my world – above and under ground! Her attention to detail is very descriptive and rich in detail. Ms. Havens makes you feel like you are literally dropped in the story and submersed in the action that is going around Fay and the men.

Ms. Houston’s creativity in the world in which she created is amazing. The characters are diverse, intelligent, loyal and stubborn to a point. The storyline is riveting and nerve-racking. She will put you in a world and will make you feel like you are the one on the run!

Fay, a Dirt Deweller, is a woman on a mission. It’s just not the mission her government wanted her to be on. She is a trained spy, a very good spy that her government has fed her missions to seek and destroy their enemy – the Airborne people. But what she learns on her last mission threatens to tear her allegiance up from the government she swore to protect and serve. Being the independent woman she is, she struck out on her own to discover what the real truth is…. But was she prepared for the real truth she was about to discover…

Three men, Arlo, Drakker and Logan… Three brothers bound to protect and serve their people. Their number one enemy is the Dirt Dewellers and at all cost, they will protect their women, children and each other from those people. Each brother has their own personality and are adorable in their own way… Arlo is my hopeless romantic. Drakker is my naughty man… domineering and defender to the end… And there is Logan… He is my alpha man, protector at all cost but he has a side of him that is just yum. Are these three men ready for one woman to rock their world to its core…Are they ready to ban together with the enemy in order to save what they know in their heart is right….

This story is awesome. From page one to the last, Ms. Houston will keep you enthralled with her words and her men… And one woman will show you what brave really means. The heat level in this book is off the charts with some loving that is quite unique to story. I promise you might even google a few things to try in your own bedroom.

There is one scene that seems to be the talk of the book – the interrogation scene…. If you make it this far, please continue to read because all I can say is that IN NO WAY does rape happen. If you don’t know about this discussion, then just continue to read the book as normal… If you have heard of this, please read for yourself to find out. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

And I will leave you with this thought… Can one woman satisfy the diverse desires of three men… Step into Ms. Havens’ world to discover what the answer to that question is….

A multi-genre story: Erotic Romance, Paranormal, Fantasy, Futuristic, Menage (MFMM), Dystopian, Post Apocalyptic, Sci-Fi, Light BDSM.

blurb4Top psychic spy Fay Avalon saw too much on her latest mind traveling mission and is now on the run from her post-catastrophic dystopian government, searching for the truth and proof. She escapes but is shot down, landing in the arms of the enemy.

In Drakker and Arlo’s world, women are so rare the men have accepted a polyandrous lifestyle. When the brothers stumble upon Fay unconscious in the wreckage of an aircraft, they are immediately attracted to her. Arlo wants to keep her, but Drakker knows they can’t. They must take her to their brother Logan Abán, leader of their people.

Logan struggles with trusting anyone, even himself. When a beautiful, intelligent, and intriguing woman falls into their laps, his denied desires for intimacy challenge his need to trust the spy. He’s frustrated by romantic Arlo’s claims of her innocence. Even when pragmatic and dominating Drakker defends her as well, Logan refuses to trust his gut.

Can one woman satisfy the diverse desires of three men? Will Logan’s fears be realized by betrayal? Is Fay to be sentenced to death as a spy, suffer a fate worse than death by being returned to her government as a traitor, or will she find a new life and love as the wife of three sexy brothers?
